Funding of €1.5 Million to projects in Cavan and Monaghan under the

Town and Village Renewal Scheme – Brendan Smith TD

I welcome this government funding which will benefit 14 towns and villages in Cavan and Monaghan and will fund a wide and diverse range of projects.   Walkways, community parks, the regeneration of derelict buildings and enhancement works at tourism attractions and the development of local amenities are deserving of this funding and will contribute to necessary local community development.

I compliment Cavan and Monaghan Councils and local community groups who have all worked to develop these projects” stated Brendan Smith TD.
